A cannabis factory has been uncovered by chance inside a former nightspot in Burton-upon-Trent.

More than 80 plants were found in the building, formerly The Q Bar, at about 09:00 BST, Staffordshire Police said.

Police Community Support Officers had been on a routine patrol and stumbled upon the plants while investigating why the premises, off Andressey Passage, was insecure.

An investigation has been launched and officers want to speak to the landlord.
